Words by Anny Schneider

The essential oil of the Camphor tree has been used for a long time as a preventative of influenza in the form of a crytalized square in a necklace of tissues.

Its essential oil was also used in massage, diluted in a neutral vegetable oil against inflammatory and muscular pains.

It is indeed a good pectoral.

Moreover, it is a repellent against insects, mites, mosquitoes and fleas included.

Origin of this essential oil

This wild Camphor essential oil from China is distilled from the wood of the tree.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
